Around The Garden
My mother’s health began to fail
I came to care and help her smile
She had a little Gardenia tree
But no flowers did she see.
I tended her with love and toil,
fertilized and loomed with soil,
was in the spring before she left,
Gardenia blooms to her I set.
Now, in the spring, she walks with me
among the garden, around the trees.
Graceful Gardenia, fragrance be,
You bloom for all eternity.
